Thanks to the Surprise your Spouse home makeover event, I had an alright experience with Asian Paints. When we painted our last apartment, I decided to get a quote from all the three and finally decided on Asian. As you can see, the most responsive was Nerolac in giving a quote while it was a cat and mouse chase with Asian Paints. But, I knew the quality of the work would be good comparatively so went with Asian. Pricing wise, the gap between Berger and Asian was huge. You can see a comparison of other factors below:
I received some amazing suggestions from you all regarding paint color. White was my favorite for living and dining as everything stands out against a white background.

Fast forward to four years. The entire house is painted with Surfa Coats, and I highly recommend it now after living in the house for two years. The surface exudes a glossy look. It’s easy to wipe the surface of any dirt, and it’s pure white. The experience with Asian Paints Royal Emulsion, on the other hand, has not been so good. The paint even though they say is washable is difficult to get the stains off.
Having said that, I do recommend Asian Paints for their special finishes. I have experimented with Dune in the past and there is a textured pink wall in the dining currently.

Surfa Coats is a relatively new player but one that I’m satisfied with. I recently got my kitchen repainted in white and you can see a noticeable difference.
